The game benefits from high quality graphics and smooth animation that brings out the theme along with the sound of the desert wind.
5 Reel Egyptian Themed Slot
Behind the sleek graphics and Egyptian theme, Riches of Ra is based on the classic slot setup of 5 spinning reels and 15 paylines. On each spin, players are able to adjust the number of paylines from one up to 15. Players can also set the number of coins bet per payline from one to five coins. The more coins wagered, the higher the possible payouts for any line win. On the reels, the four main reel symbols are all types of jewelled artefacts. The highest paying symbol in the game is the Pharaoh symbol. Finding all five across the reels will trigger the slot jackpot of 2500 coins on a standard bet.
After the Pharaoh symbol, the next highest paying symbol in Riches of Ra is the jewelled bird followed by the scarab beetle and finally the ankh. For the lower paying symbols, Play n Go have used the classic high card symbols from 10 to Ace. These have been styled and designed to blend into the theme of the game. In addition to the main slot game, players will also find a host of bonus features in the form of stacked Wild symbols, free spins and bonus round.
15 Free Spins with Wild Reels
The Wild symbol in Riches of Ra is the Egyptian god Horus. As a Wild symbol, he can be used as a substitute for any of the other games other standard reel symbols to form a winning combination. The only symbol the Wild cannot substitute for is the urn bonus symbol. In Riches of Ra the Wild symbol is also the key to activating the free spins round. When two full reels of Wilds become stacked during live play, this will trigger the free spins. Here players are rewarded with 15 free spins where reels one and five become Wild.
